Okay, so I’ve been gone for a while. Work got crazy, life got crazy, but now I’m back. During the time I was gone, I turned 24, ate a lot of meals at my desk, my Aunt and Uncle had a baby (He is perfect!) and I started wearing red nail polish again. I promise to follow in the footsteps of Michael Lohan and make a stronger attempt to be better at life; so wish me luck.
Here is an incredible crispy chocolate chip cookie recipe so that you forgive me. You get to hit a chocolate bar with a hammer–what can get any better than that?
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup Crisco vegetable shortening
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate– I smashed up a good chocolate bar by putting it in a plastic bag and went at it with a hammer for a good texture, but you can use chips
Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Cream shortening and sugar in mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla.
Add in the dry stuff, mix away, adding the oatmeal and chocolate last.
Drop by teaspoonfuls, then bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 2 to 3 dozen cookies.
